the best politics is good governing and i think we need to see more focus on solving problems and getting things done in washington than playing politics. i think to recognize there's been real progress made, right the border is safer today, the immigration system is better, the two parties worked together to do that over the last few years. there are still some meaningful things that need to get done. the d.r.e.a.m. act, we have to fix the low-end and high-end visa system. the mexicans are going to do a whole boar border system. i think there will be a lot of room to work together next year to get something meaningful done. if the republicans are earnest and play it straight i think they'll get a lot of credit for working with the democrats to fix the broken immigration system and making it better. jon: getting something meaningful done, it seems like a longtime since that's happened in washington. we'll look forward to it. simon rosenberg. kate obenshane thank you much. jenna: the nato alliance warning the assad regime in syria against using chemical weapons against his own people. this

just government, and too much of it. here he is in a clip from the 2006 documentary "1%." >> in the end we'd end up worse off. it would do harm not good. people don't pay those high taxes, they find ways of getting around it. you're never going to be able to stop them from finding ways to get around it. jenna: talking a little bit about taxes there. my next guest has written extensively about milton freidman. we wanted to ask him, what would milton do, one of the greatest economists. nobel peace prize winning economist. we have the author of the inch dense pensable milton freidman. what would he think about all of this. >> great to be with you. i'm sure if milton freidman were here today, he'd say go over the fiscal cliff. jenna: straight over it? don't even press on the brakes. >> it's always worthwhile to meet and have negotiations. at the end ever the day he favored the least government spending possible. i believe he would have said that is a course that isn't going to be accomplished by raising taxes, rather by raising taxes that will provide funding for more government spending. f

or the republican future. they honored jack kemp last night. marco rubio thing that limited government is the way to strengthen the middle class. and congressman paul ryan urging fellow republicans reach out to a broader group of american. >> this is essentially divide americans into our voters and their voters. to be clear. republicans plus dear need to steer far clear of that. [applause] we must speak to the aspirations of every american. i believe that we can turn on the incidence of upper mobility. it will require a bold departure from the approach government has taken over the last five decades. jenna: let's talk to rick perry. governor, what do you think about that. >> a full departure think you agree with that? >> for many years we have been working with folks on both sides of the aisle. we have been reaching out. i did 40% of the hispanic vote. it is one that i have bought during the presidential nominating process. we need to be talking about economic issues. we need to be talking about faith and family and how you strengthen those. how you strengthen an economy. i will suggest that we t

christmas and new year's. they do understand how serious this is. that's what they're elect to do, govern, e. jon: matt, what i've seen own sunday shows both sides are hardening. >> i worked for a president who faced challenges when he went into his re-election with hurricane katrina. what can happen at beginning of second term, we saw this with ronald reagan, we've seen it with so many presidents, their second terms seem to be a little bit of disappointment, don't live up to what they accomplish in the first term. one of the problems with president obama he rolled out of this election thinking he won the election, he can can set the terms of conversation. he needs to remember the republicans control the house of representatives. they understand their political fate is tied to working with the president and being bipartisan. there are certain things they >> first of all, let me say that republicans and democrats have to stop drawing lines in the sand. they have to get in a room and talk to each other. we'll have to make difficult decisions. we have to increase revenue and we have to reduce g

department, the federal government spends that amount every eight 1/2 days. do you think that the point is purely political for the president since that's what he campaigned on? >> that is what speaker john boehner said, is that washington has a spending problem, not a tax problem. but speaker john boehner has a political problem in that their party's guy lost the election. there is no doubt about it that the math on both sides, they are far apart. and if you add up all the revenue that will only last of eight days of funding the federal government. but there has to be compromise. republicans will have to give some ground on taxes, whether it's 800 billion, or 1.6 trillion, maybe 1.2 trillion or in that range. of course whatever deal they reach they have to get the votes for, and that's just the beginning. this fiscal cliff deal if they reach one it's just the beginning of deal making because it's not going to solve the problem. there is going to be more talks going into 2013 on tax reform and dealing with the deficit further. >> reporter: bob cusack thank you so much for joining us. we
